I absolutely love this. Thank you Garrett Thomas. Seriously, thank you for this gem. Don't mind the awkward patter. Performing without a spectator is a little odd. Completely impromptu, quick, visual, and most importantly.... completely FRIES spectators. And the best part? It's extremely simple. .mov file (high quality): http://packthebowl.com/stuff/ringthing.mov youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_a4B3ZqNNN8 I didn't bother filming the whole routine that I do. I just wanted to share this effect with anyone who isn't informed about it. Again, my hands down favorite opener. In person, after making the ring jump back to my finger, I'll go back to normal conversation as if nothing happened. 10/10 times this results in the spectators intensely asking me to keep going and to "pleaseeeee do more". I'll then whip out a deck of cards and make a very natural transition into another effect. I've had people I've met at parties bug me for the entire night about how it's done. After a couple hours it starts to get annoying, so I'll tell them that I just simply throw it back onto my finger. I explain that it's impossible to do it slowly, so I demonstrate by actually taking the ring off, slowly tossing it back to the hand, and then slipping it onto my finger again. And after that, they genuinely believe that's how it done. They just can't come to terms with my "hand skills" (lol). I then get credited with being "insanely fast with my hands". Hey... the ladies love hearing that, hahah. I think every magician should learn this one and learn it well. It's such an awesome illusion. Completely impromptu, can even be done with a borrowed ring, and like I said, it's just a GREAT opener.
